Well I’ve been playing with drawings, trying to see if I could do little comic strips of our goats. There are tons of comics with cats and dogs doing stuff. Why not goats? They’re just as crazy if not crazier after all. So here are a few of my first tries:
I get all the ideas for the cartoons from the goats. This one I was out finishing chores and got a chance to just stand and watch the kiko and nigerian dwarf kids play for a little while.
Just the inspiration though. I thought after watching Magpie, one of the Nigerian Dwarf kids hopping around, what if a kid really had a dream of actually flying? So with the help of a cattle egret who was in the pasture, she hijacked a bucket to fly. Sadly the scanner cut off her mother on the ground who is totally freaking as her daughter flies up and away.
Caricatures: Another part of this whole cartoon thing is drawing little caricatures of the goats. Especially the ones with shining personalities. Puma’s started as a joke because he was wondering loose in our barn during chores with a lead on, but to keep him safe the black handle of the lead was hooked over his horns. I looked over and saw him, a chain hangin’ around his neck and a black band around his horns and jokingly called him “Gangsta goat” and this is where it ended up:
And for anyone curious. I’m planning on posting more of my cartoons as I finish them. Hopefully the next one will be done soon. 🙂
